So let me get this straight....Most people here have Manu as a better player than Pierce, yet 90% of you (idiotically) say that Pierce was the "lead dog" on the 2008 Celtics with Kevin Garnett (who finished 3rd in MVP voting in the regular season and lead the Celtics in scoring in the Playoffs, not to mention anchored their defense) on the team?
I swear 98% of the posts on this site are made to fit an agenda.
Paul Pierce's team impact/leadership > anything Manu can do.
Seriously, though. You're telling me that if you had to choose one of those guys to be a leader on your team that you would choose Manu as the leader over PP? Look at the situation objectively and don't post until you do so.
What do you mean a leader? Manu is a leader as well....
First option...yea I'll go with Pierce but right now I think Manu is just a better player.
I'd rather have Paul Pierce... he's older now, but mostly before garnett & ray allen, Pierce was a beast. He could shoot from distance, drive the lane real tough.. I was jealous that we missed out on him and Boston got him. Dude is nasty
If the Sixers had PP in '01, they would have had a good chance to beat that Lakers team, which is regarded as the best team of the decade. Yup, I said that.
PP would have been the scoring punch that Sixers team lacked, to take some pressure off AI. The starting forwards on that team were Tyrone Hill and Jumaine Jones.
I love the Spurs and Manu but the only answer is Pierce. Manu never been first option on his NBA team where Pierce has. Pierce stats are better, would give Manu clutch lead over Pierce but not by much. 05-06 Pierce is better than any version of Manu.
Championships are a team accomplishment. Barkley, Malone, and Ewing never won titles; is Manu better than them too?
What did PP do before he had KG and Allen? How about put up 25/6/4 over the course of 10 years?
Manu is a glorified Hedo Turkoglu. I never got why he is so highly regarded. Put Manu on those early 2000's Celtics teams with Antoine Walker, Eric Willaims, Tony Battie, etc, and what would he have done?
